Which mic will do well for both of these?

    I'm looking to get two mics that will work well in both of these situations:

    1) Stereo pair for live recording (gig at a bar)
    2) Overhead drum mics for studio recording

    I have a budget - would like to get it done for under $250. I have a stereo condensor mic, Audio Technica Pro 24 XY, and I would like to get better sound than that can capture and also have standard XLR connectors. I'm happy to get mics that require phantom power.

    Thanks much.
  2. Hi, SlimT.

    I have used a pair of Pearl CR-57 "elephant *****" for both of those situations.

    Condensers that can be run with phantom power as well as with standard 9V battery. Should be relatively cheap in e-bay, I have a feeling that it's been a while since these were been sold as new.
